Default Unknown Gurkha badge

Hello,

Can anyone ID this please.

Probably not a cap badge as it has two peg fittings at the rear, maybe off a presentation item/plinth etc.

Cast WM 58m tall.

As per the rules I will be selling it on.

regards

I have a vague recollection that these were made for tourist souvenirs, normally attached to repro kukri sheathes etc
